    My kids want to ride space mountain but I don't! Can I wait on the line with my kids without riding?


    I'm with your kids. I'm always looking for ways to get out of riding Space Mountain. While I'm always trying to avoid the ride, I'm talked into riding it every time. For some reason, the drops, however mild, always get me. I cannot wait until my boys are taller and can ride Space Mountain by themselves.

    The good news is that yes, so long as your children meet the height requirement, you can accompany your children on the Space Mountain queue, exit without riding, and pick up your children at the ride exit. Simply use a so-called "chicken exit" at the end of the Space Mountain queue. Often there are signs directing you to these "chicken" exits, or you can ask a Cast Member at the end of the line where the nearest exit is and they will point you in the right direction where you can meet up with your children.

    Enjoy your vacation.
